Lol you still think people are gonna buy a $499 console over a $399 one? Yes the X1 will sell but with Japan and Europe on lock and Sony becoming more appealing in the US the X1 holds no edge this time around.
Ares84HU  +   373d ago
I can't wait either but honestly I really don't like this design. I hated it in Windows 8 as well. Just a ton of large rectangles and you have to find your way through it. I wish they did a XMB 2.0 or something.
thorstein  +   372d ago
4>1 but don't forget that 15>5 (as in minutes of footage the PS4 records v minutes X1 records)

So now it is 4>1 AND 15>5
Razputin  +   372d ago
Thorstein sorry to burst your bubble but Xbox One is going to have Twitch TV support and fully integrated.

I don't care for either console and will get both for their respective exclusives, since I am on PC, but I am just telling you that fact.

From sheer games that I have seen, the PS4 has impressed me more, but the X1 is just feature packed a lot useless to me, but heavily packed.

Everything this guy says is anti Sony. Either a super troll or a fake MS person.

I personally believe that MS has launched a coordinated 'grass roots' campaign to try and swing the tide. It's classic FUD tactics of knocking down the other company instead of focusing on your own strengths.

They tried to focus on their strengths at the unveil and it blew up in their face. So... back to standard mudslinging.

I still prefer the XMB. This just looks confusing with all the social stuff. The XMB may have been boring but it was so simple to use. I hope I am wrong about this because at the moment this feels like the change from the old store to the new one. The old one was boring but simple to use (except for the inept search engine). The new one was much more complicated to navigate (also had tech issues)

Although I see similiarities with the new store, it looks more something like Vita GUI, but with those content boxes instead of bubbles. See those little rectangular icons on top? I think those are tabs (it even seens the second tab is being showed on screen). Probably we'll use the touchpad to swipe trough tabs on PS4 like the touchscreen on Vita.

The problem with new Store is that you have that metro style graphic assemble but you can't customize or really navigate through that, those are just the games or other content the Store is promoting, while you are still basically menu list bound... The PS4 GUI, so far, doesn't show a menu list like that... The real question on PS4 gui is how customizeable is that.

That one image with all the different content just looks like the PS4's equivalent of the "what's new" tab on PS3. That's the only page that looks confusing.

The video page and text chat designs looks nice and simple like they would on PS3. I'd expect things like the friends and games tabs to follow suit.

SegaSaturn669  +   373d ago
I'm sure it will be. One of the concerns with the XMB was that it got overpopulated toward the end of the lifecycle -- as a result, casuals/new owners had some trouble finding their way around.

If it's anything like the Vita, it'll be speedy and customizable.

If you have problems finding things on the XMB you're either blind or lack thumbs.

I like it.

What does the "Launch at PS4" button in the phone-app do...? Obviously launch the game... but I don't get it? Why do I want to do it from my phone?

I would get it if it said "buy/install", so I could do it while not at home.
GribbleGrunger  +   373d ago
I've got to say, I really like the look of that. I am a minimalist by heart (perhaps that's why I like the Vita? J/K) and one thing that drives me nuts is a cluttered, overly beautified UI. This is sweet.

My metro pretty much does. It has a tiled interface, and it scrolls, just like the PS4 UI. Vertically vs horizontally doesn't make it indistinguishable.

Or maybe you have a customized metro. Please prt scr it and paste it!
MoveTheGlow  +   372d ago
I think this looks a lot like the promotional stuff outside of the PS Store that they released before the store overhaul - those random-ish squares that displayed new content and news over a bright blue background.

I'm kinda meh. I think this might be some sort of "front page" or news feed that doesn't represent the whole thing.

Windows are not the first to have this style of interface so they are not coping, heck even N4G has a similar interface if you click on the 'Tabloid' tab at the top.

So far I still prefer the XMB, but I need to see more of this before I decide on which I prefer.

I like this look more then what the PS3 has. One of my favorite things is to always check up on my friends and see what they have been up to lately. Now it gives you a more detailed look at there history. Kind of like Facebook for gamers. Sounds good to me!

Plus it looks like you can still use avatar pics and change your background theme if you wish.

Yeah, instead Sony is all about casuals now and wants to tell you when someone on your friend's list played a game, when they earned a trophy, and more stuff that most hardcore gamers don't care about.

Xbox One still has stupid restrictions (like the mandatory Kinect) but at least it still looks like it's more of a console for the hardcore (outside of the TV stuff).

DigitalRaptor  +   373d ago
I'm going to mark this as trolling, but even though I've seen much better interfaces than this, I'd like to know where "everywhere" is in regards to ads.

1) There's only ONE ad in all of these, it's gaming related and it links to the PlayStation Store. It's no different to the promotionals that appear on the current XMB that link to the store.

2) There's no indication or proof that ads will be there if you're a PS+ subscriber. Whilst we KNOW that Microsoft puts intrusive and non-gaming ads on your dashboard regardless of your premium subscription.

3) Most of these are feeds that show what your friends have purchased, what they're playing, have shared, have purchased or trophies they have unlocked. When it's about my friends sharing things, I care. When a company shamelessly promotes non-gaming products that I have no interest in, that's where I draw the line. This PS4 interface is 100% game/gamer related, no matter how much you dislike it.

4) Your "SDF" point just went limp because we mention these things in validity, whilst the apologists like yourself just accept corporate greed and have ensured that the Xbox One dashboard has been designed with ads in mind. Proof? http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Where are the intrusive ads that MS puts on their dashboard? just as you stated the ads on 360 are either game related or content related that can be purchased on the 360.

There might be a non 360 related ad in the corner of the dashboard but I hardly call that intrusive.

Lets hope none of your friends like Dance Party or some other lame game or else you'll be bombarded with that all over your PS4 dash.

Nice link to a Anti Xbox rant, yea that's proof we are all going to believe.

@ BattleTorn

I didn't expect a pair of Microsoft apologists to actually watch the video. Oh yeah it's easy to brush off a video because you don't like the eye-opening contents.

"Anti-Xbox One News" is just the tagline of some of his videos and most of them were made before Microsoft back-peddled (understandable as what reasonable person was supporting them before they reversed their policies), but if you think BlackbusterCritic is a fanboy, you're nothing short of foolish.

Firstly, if you've been watching his commentaries on YouTube as long as I have you'll know that him and his brother Shokio are all round gamers. Real gamers that don't take sh*t. It's like some of you guys can't accept that Microsoft has done some pretty unacceptable things and that people are people want to talk about it.

Secondly, his video I posted is reporting an article, it's not just made up by him. I suggest you actually watch it, unless you find the contents too disturbing to take in.

Yeah it's a rant, and what the heck kind of difference does that make to the contents of what he is reporting??

So as XboxFun(??) stated ..

You went out of your way to defend a link that is clearly an anti MS rant from some nobody on youtube but never once answered the question given.

The so called ads on the dashboard are content related or available on the 360. Every 360 owner knows this, it seems it's only the other camp that has this misinformation or a problem with it.
DigitalRaptor  +   371d ago
@ BattleTorn

Are you really THAT dense? If you've watched their vids (and not just a fingerpicked selection) then you'd understand that Shokio has a preference for Nintendo, based of past experience. BlackBuster is more of a PC guy.

Those videos you posted just showed a guy trolling people. It showed a guy having fun at the expense of REAL fanboys. If that guy is a fanboy then why does he have a PS3? Why does he have a Halo 3 poster? Why does he have several Nintendo flagship franchise posters on his wall?

If these two gamers are fanboys then why in the heck do they both buy all the current generation consoles, buy games for them, pay for Xbox Live and game across multiple platforms? PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Vita, 3DS, DS, Wii, Wii U and numerous past generation consoles.

Are you that desperate to write these people off to try and prove a point you can't justify? That's basically what I'm getting from your comment. What this sounds like to me is your lack of ability to deal with the fact the people might not like what Microsoft is doing with the Xbox One.

Shokio's "Dealwithit" speaks for every consumer that dislike's the "deal with it" attitude Microsoft had for their entire XB1 reveal. How is that fanboy for disliking a corporation's attitude?

Blackbuster's "Anti-Xbox One news" speaks for every consumer that feels disdain at what Microsoft tried to do with the XB1, regardless of the 180 they did so they weren't left behind. Again how is hating on a corporation that didn't have the best interests of its consumers in mind during the creation of their next gaming console, being a fanboy?

I just proved to you, your insecurity. You jumped to a conclusion that these people are fanboys ONLY because they're exposing truths about a company you like to support. Just get some real perspective and you might finally get it.

@ maniacmayhem

Firstly, my point was that this "nobody" on youtube is quoting a factual article about the steps Microsoft are taking to personalise your ads as part of the experience - something clearly more intrusive than you have on 360 today. The article that is quoted (CLICK IT, READ IT) in the description of BlackBuster's video cannot be negated, unless you're trying to apologise for Microsoft.

Just because it is in "Rant" form doesn't negate anything that he is quoting from the article. His delivery of the information in this article might make you believe he is a fanboy, but that is not relevant.

I'll apologise in regards to "intrusive ads" because whenever I've used a 360 when with friends, or seen friend navigating the dash, what I've seen is advertisement content for things that are not related to gaming and if I was actually paying for Live, I'd be annoyed that they were there. Things might've changed but this is my recollection- so again if things have changed, I apologise.

Its a mixed bag for me. Certainly getting away from the more simple XMB and going more "social". A few screens definitely have that "facebook" feel which I am not crazy about. I know they talked up facebook integration at the reveal but to what extent we still don't know but this looks like its possibly pretty deep. The game screens look nicely laid out though and seems to give off some good quick info for the user.

I am buying a PS4 Day one but I must say I'm not overly happy with this design, honestly I know a lot of people didn't like the XMB because it looked clunky and not particularly attractive but it was so convenient, simple and fast to use. This looks like they have sacrificed ease of use for style which is a very un-playstation thing to do. I sincerely hope this UI is more customisable.

I agree, I love the XMB but I know it put some people off.

But you have to look at it in the context of what the ps4 is all about... there's a share button on the pad, the console is all geared up for social interaction, like it or not that's probably why it has the look and feel it has because it's what the mass of consumers will feel comfortable with.

I'm not making any judgements until I've had one sat on my desk for a few months and made use of all it has to offer.

That's not Sarah Greene! Where's Sarah?! What did you do with the real Sarah?!

Good thing we don't have to use facebook.

I bet this will run smooth.

Hmmm
This looks ok to me , not great not horrible. I really don't care in the end as long as I can start my game quickly and not have to navigate through a bunch of crap. When it comes out it my feelings may change
